Ottawa gives pipeline regulator 22 weeks to review Trans Mountain expansion project

The Liberal government is instructing the federal pipeline regulator to review the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion to consider the project’s impact on the marine environment.

Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi said Friday the National Energy Board will have 22 weeks to hear from Canadians and report back to government.

Sohi announced details of the government’s next steps during a news conference in Halifax with Jonathan Wilkinson, minister of fisheries and oceans, calling it a “very important step forward.”
